I started P90X on April 6, 2015. I knew that the journey was not going to be easy, but I also knew that I needed something to challenge myself. I have tried this program twice before and always stopped before I could get the full benefits. All that I know this time around is that I'm giving it all that I have. I have to do modifications of many of the exercises. I have to take frequent breaks. But....I refuse to quit. I have to show myself that I Can Do This. I may not reach the goal that I've set out to accomplish (30 pound weight loss), but that's okay. Finishing this program for the first time will be a major milestone. It will mean that I didn't give up this time.

The last couple years have been truly tough ones for me. I've had to deal with some major stress issues, and on top of that I've started that phase of pre-menopause. I just hate all the emotions that come along with that, but I also know that it's a part of my life now and I know that my body is slowing down a bit and I best start treating it right. I'm learning so many new things this time around and one of those things is knowing that some days will be harder than the others. Nobody said that it would be easy. I accept this at face value.

When I look at the progress I've made so far it only makes me want to keep going. You see....I've been here before. I've gotten as far as 45 days completed of this program and gave up. I know that I'm going to have to keep digging a little deeper and just do the best that I can. I may not come out of this looking like Dreya or Pam the Blam (LOL), but I will come out of this happier than I've been in a long time. That's another thing that doing this program has given to me....a renewed confidence in taking better care of my body. This is what keeps me pushing play every day.
